Replace my K2 Aftershock

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for my "one-ski" replacement. I've been skiing the K2 Aftershock for 3 years now. They're pretty much ski'd out. I'm looking for a similar ski but I don't want to go skinnier than a 86 and no fatter than a 98. Recomendations?

What do you want that the Aftershock isn't...beside the Aftershock being skied out?

I'd like something similar for crud, multi-purpose, maneuverability, and maybe a little more float for more off-piste riding.

Here's a few I'm considering in no direct order. Line Prophet 90, Kastle BMX 88, Line Prophet 98, Rossignol Experience 88, Blizzard Bushwacker, Blizzard Bonafide.

I'm not closed off to other ideas though.

I'd love some help and input. Thanks.

would the new K2 AMP Rictor 90 work for what you are looking for? Wondering what opinions others have.

I'd want to know what he wants different than the Aftershock? Just more float? Plus, how many days are on them? My year of 70 days is more than most, but many skiers only put on 20. Maybe those skis just need a tune.

I'm not really interested in the AMP right now. As for different, a little more float but I can't really complain about anything else with my Aftershocks. I'm just looking for something new. I've ski'd these K2's for three years and a lot of days. I don't know exactly how many days they have but it's more than 70 and they were my only skis. I'd like something similar to the Aftershocks.

Your list is pretty much all over the map so lets take a look at what the A/S was. This was a medium flex with moderate grip and a smooth and comfortable feel on groomers. Among skis of its width, it was pretty good in shallow soft snow. While most of the skis on your list will be at least somewhat better in softer snow (notably not the Rossi), none will likely have the same type of feel on packed conditions.

 

Two skis that will be closer in feel to what you had on groomers are the Dynastar Outland 87 and the new version of the Atomic Crimson. Both will have the smooth and damp feel of the K2 you had and both will offer a modest improvement over the K2 in crud.
